Wardrobe Architect--Time For Some Confessions

I have a confession. I am embarrassed to say but my wardrobe is all over the place.

I have clothes that I don't wear and never will.

I have clothes that I want to wear, but I don't have anything to wear it with.

I have clothes that I spent too much on and feel guilty not wearing, but have no desire to wear.

I have clothes that I have no where to wear it to.

Most of the clothes that I do wear, are very worn. In fact, the long sleeve tee that I am wearing right now is faded to the point of not wanting to wear it.

As a stay at home mom, I don't wear some of my clothes because because it just seems odd to be cleaning kitchens and toilets in blouses and skirts.

This is the year that I am going to take control of my wardrobe. Doing the Ready-To-Wear Fast with Sarah at GoodbyeValentino.com has me thinking more about what is in my wardrobe. I need to be more practical about what I sew.

I have been losing weight and do not plan on gaining it back for health reasons Most likely I will lose another size and maybe two. Unfortunately, this is leaving me with jeans and pants that are falling off. Some of my tops are looking sloppy or have gaping necks or arms. I really need to be planning on some replacements or some smaller belts!

I decided to participate in the Wardrobe Architect on Coletterie.com. This is a weekly project, exercise or discussion to discover what shapes our personal style, what our personal style is, and how to create a wardrobe that reflects this style--and one that we will wear.

This is the third week and it has been very enlightening. I'm not quite ready to share yet, because I keep returning to the worksheets and exercises. I will definitely share my progress when I am ready.

How has your wardrobe come to be? Shopping sales? It fits, I'll buy it? I needed something for an event? My sister/friend/mother/daughter cleaned out her closet and dumped it on me?
